What to Back Up in Operations Manager 2007

Updated: May 22, 2009

Applies To: Operations Manager 2007 R2, Operations Manager 2007 SP1

To be able to preserve data in case of a failure, you must have a recent backup of System Center Operations Manager 2007 databases and other important data as listed in this topic.

Data to Back Up

To ensure your ability to properly preserve and restore your Operations Manager 2007 environment, you should back up several key items as follows:

  • OperationsManager database, OperationsManagerDW database, and the OperationsManagerAC database.

  • Root management server encryption key

  • Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 Metabase

  • Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0 configuration

  • Custom management packs

  • custom report definition files and computer certificates

In the event that the entire management group is lost, you must have backups of both the OperationsManager database and the root management server key to ensure a successful recovery. Therefore, at a minimum, ensure that your backup plans include both the OperationsManager database and the root management server encryption key.
